I find people say the dumbest things when they see someone who is big and muscular aside from the usual :
how big are your arms?
how much do you bench?
what do you take?


I find people try to take you out of your field so they think they can "best" you for what reason i don't know must be an ego thing.

I was in a fitness studio doing some paperwork not long ago, while there a former british champion in his 50's was trianing a client.  Soon as i walked in he started the usual, arms and drugs talk, I set him straight about the drugs talk (something I find very rude) he shut up and went back to training his client.  He then came out with "i bet you couldnt run 5 miles... Huh Huh Huh at this point i just ignored him.

it made me think though, how come i never walked up to him when i walked in and asked him if he could bench 400+ or deadlift 600?Huh

or row 350
 Huh Huh Huh

anyone else get people like this...

Ridiculous but the thing on people's mind always seem to be, what I bench. It's like common bro practice that you need to disclose your bench press number if they suspect you of going to a gym. I don't even know if they mean one rep max or what I actually do bench with regularly and I never ask, because it's just so silly!

Of course but that's nothing.  I regularly underwent that experience to a far greater degree back in high school.

I always get asked in person how much I bench and I always tell them 225, then that stops the rest of the stupid questions, if I tell them the truth then a dozen more questions come so 225 ends that conversation Wink

my best ever (if you promise not to tell  Grin) is 515lb on the flat, raw ,no one touching the bar, hitting my chest and locking out, no pause at the bottom though, it was a pretty hard bounce.

On decline I have done 565 for a double but decline is way easier.

Not sure what the problem here is. You take steroids to be big/massive larger than nature intended to attract attention to yourself. Then when you get it, your offended  Huh

No I do not become a monster for people to look at me in public, sorry you are dead wrong, in fact I am often embarrassed and like spending a fraction of my year small or smaller.

I do not mind other people that lift look and take interest and people at the gym but normal people looking at me fucken sucks. And I sure as hell will not flex when a stranger asks me too in public.

I love to lift, I love bodybuilding and hopefully can jump on stage again but public attention fucken blows.

I understand your love of bodybuilding, believe me I do (I'm the same). But if you choose to take bodybuilding to the next level which you have, you know full well what your in for. That includes attracting attention both good & bad.

agree 100% but that is why I wear long sleeve buttom shirts, they always make you look smaller.

You got me beat on the natural lift though, the highest I got was 365 with no PED in me

When you get to your level of largeness, it doesn't really matter what you wear your still going to attract attention because your huge & without fat guts. So automatically people think that looks strange to be that big without being fat & lean face ect..

I am flattered but your physique kills mine bro, you are dam well holding your own against Dugdale and he did not look much different when he turned pro either and you are a hell of a poser too. How about some of those pics Wink
